Straight off the "Mr. Lucky" flash from '82 Doing these pieces from my sensei make me so happy. Just real straight forward meat-and-potatoes tattooing. Old Style.
Koi half sleeve, session one done and healing nicely.

This mural was designed to wrap around the walls of the bathrooms at at a bar called Whiskeytown in NYC. To keep with the rock and roll bar's subtle nautical theme I designed the mural to evoke a clash between classic American sailor tattoo imagery and the more modern Japanese influenced tattoos. All of which was filtered through my own illustrative style.

I got this for my 30th. Influenced by the work of Keith Haring, it celebrates my role as a DJ at the time.

Rainy day! So, I spent it inside hiding behind the laptop :) B is sleeping, as always, and we saw a mouse in the flat today. Not the cute kind, the vermin kind! Although I do feel bad that we'll have to set more traps and take it's little mousey life away :( sob! The funniest thing is, B is terrified of them, and I'm the one who shoos it into the other room and had to get things because he's busy hiding on the sofa- 'I'm not going on the floor, it will bite my toes!' haha :')
